Lenovo has joined Asus and Acer in the 3D fray, and is offering its own 15″ laptop with glasses. Lenovo expects to introduce its new laptop on or about June 22nd of this year. Lenovo also is going to be using a different technology than the others that offer 3D from NVidia. The Lenovo laptop will feature 3D technology from Tridef, which will be using a polarized method to being 3D to the consumer.
The Lenovo laptop will also feature:
Aside from 3D, the Y560d runs on Intel’s latest quad-core processor – the Core i7-840QM (1.8GHz), up to 8 Gbytes of DDR3 memory, and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD5730 (1GB VRAM) graphics card. It’s highly configurable, so you have up to ten other Intel Core processors to choose from. The Y560d has an optional Blu-ray drive and can be configured with up to a 750-GB hard drive (5,400 RPM). Faster drives (7,200 RPM) and SSDs are available as well.
Price for the new laptop from Lenovo will start at $1,199.
While some are dismissing 3D as just a fad, only time will tell how well these new units will sell. It should also be interesting to see how the different 3D technologies fare once all of the 3D units become available to the public.
